New seminar series – Birthing and Early Motherhood

Birthrights and the Open University are hosting, from January 2014, a series of six seminars on the subject of ‘Birthing and Motherhood’.

The seminars aim to bring together researchers, health professionals and all those interested in the subject to generate research agendas on the themes of the birthing experience, early motherhood, and the concept of dignity in childbirth. Each seminar will present a paper outlining new research and thinking, and participants will have an opportunity to talk through the findings and think about new directions for research.

Please contact Deborah Talbot for further information, to register interest for the purposes of catering, and if you would like to present a paper.

Seminars are free to attend.
